Father's Day Gifts for Car Loving Dad

Looking for a good, original Father's Day gift - here's a few for the dad who's into cars:

Vintage racing jackets are affordable and look cool: http://www.vintagetrends.com/ is a good place to start.

Old Decals work too: www.porkystruckstop.com/nostalgia.htm

Check out http://www.diecastmodelcars.com/ for a good online selection of scale model cars, old and new. Or how about some old racing movies - http://www.raresportsfilms.com/ has old racing footage, racing movies as well as football, baseball and other nostalgic sports videos.

Or if your dad is really into keeping that old or new ride clean, hit http://www.griotsgarage.com/ for stuff like special buffers, lighted tweezers, a windshield cleaner that gets the corners, motor oil colonge (yes, really) and the ultimate car washing kit. They even have thier own father's day gift guide.

If that doesn't work how about a vintage soda machine - http://www.barsandbooths.com/ and maybe a little old style, original recipe Dr Pepper to fill it - http://www.dublindrpepper.com/


  1. NICE! - the soda machines are cool.

  2. These Fathers' Day presents are so nice! Daddies out there will gonna love these stuff. I can still remember when we celebrated Fathers' Day last year in dad's home in Edmonton. But before that, my father mentioned about this Dodge that the truly loves. He wanted to buy them, but he didn't have enough money to do so. So days before Father's Day, we went to the car dealerships in Edmonton. Dodge Caravan was the car that I bought for my dad and when I already gave it to him, he was so surprised and he liked my present so much!

  3. I've been looking for that jacket for a real long time, only in red. Know of a website where I can purchase one?

  4. Driving gloves or fuzzy dice might be good gifts as well. They're a bit minor, but they give a nice look to any car and with the case of the gloves, they are able to give the hands a good grip on the steering wheel.
